Now, this is seriously a monster of a player... with 160GB at your disposal, you can turn into a power user!

All said, if you're the type who commutes long distances and/or travel often, and want to carry all your music and movies, look no further than the 160GB iPod Classic. As of now, the warranty is global, so even gray pieces are covered. In any case the...

Apple iPod Classic (160GB)

 

Apple's refreshed iPod line recently made its debut, to much fanfare. Along with new colors for the Shuffle, redesigned nanos, and innovative Touch lines, the good ole iPod we've come to know and love has been given the badge of “Classic” and,...

Huge capacity; excellent sound quality; revamped interface

Sluggish/balky menus; no docking station included; requires iTunes 7

The Apple iPod Classic which we review, is slim, and offers more storage, but gives current iPod owners little reason to upgrade.

The iPod Classic is the latest revamping of Apple's iconic hard drive MP3 player, formerly known as the Video iPod or fifth-generation iPod. As Apple's only remaining high-capacity MP3 player, the iPod Classic comes in both 80GB ($249) and 160GB...

The iPod Classic is just like the fifth-generation iPod with video, only slimmer, tougher, and injected with a more visually rich graphical user interface

Video output now requires a proprietary cable; audio quality has not improved; some older iPod video accessories may not be compatible; users are required to use the latest version of iTunes, which may not work on some older computer systems

The iPod Classic is a refinement of the formula that put the iPod on the map. Few can match its combination of storage capacity, battery life, and advanced user interface.

A superior update to Apple's 2005 and 2006 hard-disk based iPods, featuring cleaner audio, crisper video, better storage capacity and greater than promised battery performance at last year's prices. Available in silver or black versions, each featuring...

No longer Apple's "best iPod ever ; outdated 2.5" screen and interface are now steps behind Apple's best devices in ease-of-use and quality of overall media playback experience, while new interface struggles to match iPhone/iPod touch features without...

My biggest question: Does it work with the Apple Radio Remote? I don't use it much for radio, so if the radio isn't supported, it's no big deal, but I want to use the remote controls

Dust off your toy box and load it up with new toys-the iPod has more fun gadgets and dress-ups than any other portable. Our "TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award" winner likes to play and with 160GB of storage can play almost anything including video, music and...

The iPod by Apple is an exceptional multipurpose player that has been so trendy you can find endless amounts of accessories and downloads.

Other manufacturers appear to have given up on hard disk-based MP3 players, but not Apple. The latest iPod Classic has a huge 160GB capacity, yet it's no thicker than three £1 coins thanks to its single-platter 1.8in hard disk.

It has plenty of storage and excellent battery life, but niggling audio quality issues prevent it getting an unqualified recommendation.

The iPod Classic refines the formula that put the iPod on the map. Few can match its combination of storage capacity, battery life and intuitive user interface.

Sleek, understated design ; Easy-to-use interface ; Great podcast support ; Genius feature creates new playlists for you ; Video playback is excellent ; Rated battery life is great

EQ control is limited ; Some older iPod video accessories may not be compatible ; The plastic screen is susceptible to scratching ; Users are required to use the latest version of iTunes, which may not work on some older computer systems

As the availability of high-capacity hard-drive MP3 players seems to be on the decline, we're happy to see that Apple is continuing to develop them. The iPod Classic doesn't deliver the futuristic novelty of the iPod Nano or the iPod Touch, but it is...

Version 6 of the iPod brings a marginal evolution to the table

Huge storage space, improved interface, fast data transfer, good battery life, value for money

Click-wheel accuracy lower than previous models, bundled ear-phones could have been better, no major additions to the feature-list

Product Specifications

Decisions, decisions. Who needs 'em? Why should you have to choose what to put on your iPod? With large storage capacity, iPod classic lets you carry everything in your collection - up to 40.000 songs or up to 200 hours of video - everywhere you go. In a completely new, even thinner, all-metal design, this iPod is a modern classic. The iPod classic gives your music and video room to move. It also has plenty of energy (up to 40 hours of audio playback), good looks (a sleek, all-metal design), and a great personality (a brand-new interface with Cover Flow). In other words, iPod classic makes an ideal companion. Why not get to know it better?
